After i got Cryptics e mail that i may play STO for free as an past subscriber, i went for it, and now after nearly 2 weeks of playing i have to say its more fun then ever and there are 2 major points that changed for those who were dissapointed when the game came out.
1) Some of the Story driven episodes have been rewritten, they got multiple choice dialogue and voiceover, its a shame not all episodes share that level of quality, but its really nice hearing a klingon singing while he flys into suicide...
2) duty officer system, a surprisingly fun minigame, its like havin 100 pets who you send out for missions, and there is a lot to do in the universe for your duty officers. Thats the best new point, i really feel like a captain, i send my crew to do stuff, i dont have to be there, they can die like red shirts or be injured, you get currency/xp/and or items for these missions.
space combat hasnt changed a lot, flying my science vessel is as fun as its always was. ground combat got an overhaul. its better, still not perfect, but enjoyable.
STO as a pay to play, , wasnt good enough, for a free2play, its a blast and a lot of fun. There is even endgame content now...
C Store offers a lot, but most of it is cosmetic and not necessary, just some interesting tier5 ships. but no game braker if you dont invest anything.
so thats my 2 cents on STO
have fun best regards!!
